A square has not a length but a perimeter; this perimeter is the sum the sides lengths.

The perimeter is the distance around the square. All four sides of a square are of equal length. The formula for finding the perimeter of a square is P = 4s (the length of one side multiplied by four)

If the length of one side of of a square is s, then the perimeter, P is found as:P = 4s

Area of a square can be calculated using the formula A = a^2, where "a" is the length of a side of the square. Its perimeter is P = 4*a. 49 = a^2 => a = 7cm P = 4*7 = 28cm The perimeter of the square is 28cm.

The answer will depend on what information about the square you have: its perimeter, area, length of diagonal.

Square is a special case of a rectangle and the same formula may be used to find the perimeter

Perimeter of a square = 4 x (length of any one side)

no

I believe you mean perimeter. Perimeter(square) = 4*length of one side.

The formula for the area of a square is: s * s where s = length of a side The formula for the perimeter of a square is: 4 * s where s = length of a side

yes

perimeter x size

Perimeter of a rhombus = 4 x (length of one side)(Notice how closely the formula resemblesthe one for the perimeter of a square.)

I think so

The formula for measuring the area of a square is s2, where s is the length of one of the sides. The perimeter would be 4s.
